Fancy watching Ashton Kutcher eat? Here’s where to catch him in New York and Los Angeles.

Now you can swoon over your burger AND the stars eating them too.

Want to dine like the stars or increase your odds of seeing one? Urbanspoon has collected the best restaurants for celebrity sightings in a culinary map to the stars.

Compiled from user data, reviews and expert commentary, the list of top 50 restaurants and cafes for star-gazing spans nine cities across the US, including New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Boston, Charleston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami and Washington D.C.

Urbanspoon is a restaurant guide that aggregates reviews from professional food critics, bloggers, and diners.

And though they’re frequented by the stars, not all addresses will set you back a week’s pay, as the list also includes affordable cafes and pizza joints.

Big Jay-Z fan? Try scoring a table at The Spotted Pig in New York, or Cafe Gratitude in Los Angeles, editors say.

In New York, fans of Drake, Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Jason Segal may want to try their luck at Sons of Essex, a restaurant inspired by the immigrant and gentrification history of the Lower East Side – think “Gangs of New York” and the Bowery Boys.

Diners tuck into hearty, rib-sticking meals like fried chicken with kohlrabi slaw, jalapeño cornbread and Asian spiced honey and double cut pork chops with potato pureé, roasted king oyster mushrooms and mustard brown butter, that average US$30 (RM96.50).

In Tinseltown, a night at Fig & Olive may mean sharing a dining room – and upping your chance of a celebrity selfie – with A-list stars like Jennifer Aniston, Robert Downey Jr., Halle Berry, Johnny Depp and Ryan Gosling.
